    Have you been to Tourneau before? If ever you wondered what it would be like to buy a wristwatch from a used car salesman, then Tourneau is the answer.

    I'd put Moulded Shoe, the Modified last guys, on your list too. And maybe Wempe instead of Tourneau.

    Looking great Zipster! Your PTBs are looking great and have a nice shine on them.

    Steve,
    Big props to you! Thanks for sharing this nugget. I've been waiting on the Halleck re-issue for a long time. I've got a pair of #8 Brixtons from Epaulet from years ago. It's an awesome boot with double leather and antique edge. Since then, I've wanted a Brixton style with commando and all eyelets. I know this run of Halleck's has black edge trim, but I'm all in. I wear my Alden commando-soled models probably 3 or 4 times more often than leather-soled models. Just better all around in my opinion.

    Dave glad you got a pair, I picked up a pair too.
    I think the dark edge is a little more versatile, but I like antique edges too.

    This is a SWEET-looking boot my friend! This may sound blasphemous but I think I prefer this to the Tanker (NST) with similar specs. Won't spoiler bc I want to see it again and again and... [​IMG]
